Kate Franzman

Editorial Director

I began my career in the Lois Lane lane, with an educational background in print and broadcast journalism.

Positions at cultural heavy hitters including the Indianapolis Museum of Art and NUVO Newsweekly, taught me so much about Indy. And I'm impressed by her on a daily basis.

I currently work for Pivot Marketing, an ad agency in the historic Fountain Square neighborhood. I've also been known to freelance for Indy Monthly, NUVO, IndySpectator, and the Indy Star.

Specialties: copywriting for print and web, blogging, social media, emerging technologies, online video production

Remodel: St. Elmo Steak House

Using a manly dose of dark woods and deep colors, and a fully restored vintage bar from 1898, the 109-year-old St. Elmo Steak House has converted its unused 3,000-square-foot second story into a speakeasy-style lounge—an answer to the dinnertime surge known to choke the steakhouse’s main-level bar on busy nights.
